BACH MIRRORED – Maurizio Croci

BACH MIRRORED
Parallel Preludes, Fantasias & Fugue

In the development of Johann Sebastian Bach’s genius, musical ideas often migrated from one instrument to another, transforming and transfiguring themselves before acquiring a definitive form. The organ and harpsichord pieces presented in this recording mirror each other. Following the same musical inspiration, Bach explores the idioms and technical possibilities of both instruments, often evoking on one instrument the idiom of the other.
